Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall:   We recently became aware of a recall by Kidde for plastic handled fire extinguishers.  We are aware of several of our members having these in their hangars at FFZ as part of their required hangar fire suppression equipment.  We are also aware that the potential exists for member’s home extinguishers to be affected as well.  If you have a Kidde plastic handled fire extinguisher, please check for the latest in how to identify affected models and how to get them replaced for free.
